the football from charlie brown. the president is now asking for twice the amount of increase in taxes that he campaigned on. really, the proposal that tim geithner brought to capitol hill is one that i believe the democrats one-point even support if put to a voight. the increase in taxes in over $200,000 of income, the incredible increase in change to the death tax, wanting to have a new credit card with no credit limit to the president so he can additionally just borrow and spend and tax? you go through all of these things. it really never deals with the fumblefundamental problem in our country which is the spending. our problem is not that we're taxed too little, we just continue to spend too much. >> he is asking that the debt ceiling that he has sole control over and how much the debt ceiling can be raised without having to get permission from capitol hill. i mean, those two things he had to know were going to be non-starters with the republicans and maybe with some democrats, so i mean, maybe you're right that he deliberately is trying to move the goal posts so that there is no deal that
